Leadership: Lessons from a Team Captain

Do you feel like you’ve tried everything by the book to lead your teams well—held weekly meetings, created paths for communication, hosted team outings, or employed a series of tools and tricks—, but your team still seems to experience growth challenges, high turnover, and miscommunication often? If so, you’re not alone. There are a lot of books, blogs, and tools out there that help us check boxes on what we should be doing, but they fall short in identifying and building the fundamental characteristics, values and behaviors of leadership that make all those tips and tricks actually work.


Leadership: Lessons from a Team Captain draws on the experience of Speaker, Marketer and Teacher, Founder, and Self-Proclaimed Pocket Cheerleader, Ciara Ungar, as an athlete and the study of today’s greatest names in sports, such as Kobe Bryant, Alex Morgan and Drew Brees, to identify characteristics and behaviors that we see in team captains across sports that are applicable to the business world. Building on a foundation of the psychology of leadership dynamics, Ciara explores generational gaps between traditional and new age office environments, unlearning the invisible ideal of perfection, intrinsic motivation, one-on-one relationships, trust-building and more, challenging you to rethink how you define a team leader and the characteristics that are required.
